Finally Completed

-1 or 2 Flat bladed screw drivers

-Pull off the Lower panel from the driver side 9remove the small light bulb)
-Pull off the Driver side fuse panel
-Remove the two 7mm bolts holding on the mid panel (under the steering wheel)
-This panel pulls straight out towards the driverseat (disconnect the remote trunk switch)
-Remove the four 7mm bolts from the front of the sheet medal panel (three on left side on on right side)
-Looking from under the steering column you will see four 10mm bold hold in the sheet medal plate in place. Remove all of these

-Simply pull the main bash piece off ( I started from the passenger side) remember that your hazard switch is still connected

-Shift back to park
-Look up under the bash, you can see the Ingition cyclinder
-Look for the cable going into the lower portion of the module
-with the key in ON, push the tab and remove this cable
-Remove the 10 mm bolts on the front to release the ignition module.
-Return to OFF and work the module out from behind the dash to the floorboard.

-with the key in ON again roll the module until you see a small tab, push and the ignition cylinder will slide right out

Once you new one is in you do the relearn as follows
-Attempt to start
-Leave in key in ON for ~10 min SECURITY will stop flahing and go off
-Turn key ot OFF wait 5 seconds
-Attempt to start
-Leave in key in ON for ~10 min SECURITY will stop flahing and go off

-Attempt to start
-Leave in key in ON for ~10 min SECURITY will stop flahing and go off
-Turn key ot OFF wait 5 seconds
-Attempt to start and it should as well as it will relearn your new passlock


hope this helps as well as saves other time and money

So i am thinking that i need a new ignition cyl. twice in the past 10 to 12 months my 2002 ss will have a no crank no start. I will try jumping it and tapping the starter but nothing will happen. then out of no where i will turn the key and it will start right up. oh and once in a while the security light will come on while driving.

So what do you think. replace the ignition or just try to relearn it?
thanks for any help.

@ PSSON24

Could you please send me pics of the ignition cylinder change? I'm thinking it might fix my problem - my security system randomly goes off (lights/horn going off)
